Living in the midst of the national forest, alongside a river of State-wide significance, bordering a designated wilderness, sinks me into a space where stories flow. Words, thoughts, tales from others fascinate me, and I started this space as a place to hear stories. My primary focus is writing, and I also love hearing how others capture their stories. So my hope is that we can sit back here, as if gathering around a warm fire with friends, and chat about words.
The photo at the top of the homepage shows me walking in what looks like a large creek. It is actually the road I live on shortly after a flood event. Part of the river decided to change course and now the road is in the process of having to change course to accomodate the water. You don’t win arguments with nature.
If you would like to learn more about the beautiful area I’m lucky enough to call home, do an image search on any of the following: the Skykomish River, the Wild Sky designated wilderness, Mt. Index, Steven’s Pass, Mt. Baring, whitewater rafting along the Skykomish, rock climbing on the Index Town Wall, or hiking the Cascade mountains. It’s a beautiful area.
